Godzilla vs. Kong has yet to release in the United States, where its release date is March 31. That is why in the critical and review sites, such as Rotten Tomatoes or IMDb, there are mostly specialized reviews and several members of the press who had access to the new Monsterverse film in advance.
Despite this, there are some fans of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, better known as the Snyder Cut, who are leaving bad ratings for Godzilla vs. Kong, as a form of protest against Warner Bros., and in a way that they can be heard in their new campaign, #RestoreTheSnyderverse.
After Zack Snyder released his four-hour version of Justice League, which by the way, outperformed the version that hit theaters in 2017, the director’s most ardent fans began the #RestoreTheSnyderverse campaign to ask Warner Bros. . to continue with the original vision of the director of the DC Extended Universe, in which Superman would have a movie for him, in the hypothetical Justice League 3. At least on social networks it was a success, since last weekend it reached the figure of one million posts on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Adam Wingard’s film has already been released in various parts of the world, such as Latin America and China, Godzilla vs Kong which began to garner ratings, mostly good from critics, but on IMDb, a group of “Snyderverse” fans are rating the Legendary Pictures film with 1 star, calling for a boycott of all Warner Bros tapes and asking the production company to “give the fans what they ask for.”
But will Zack Snyder fans get what they want? Ann Sarnoff, director of Warner Media Studios, told Variety that at Warner they are always going to listen to their fans, but “we are at the service of the broader fan base and we owe them a comprehensive and holistic strategy”, which could disappoint. to those who seek to hear “more unique voices”.
Meanwhile, Godzilla vs. Kong is on track to be the best performing film at the box office in the COVID-19 era, and after its international debut, it has a score of 7.4 on IMDb and 79% on Rotten Tomatoes, while in IGN Latin America we rate it with an 8 , because it is the movie that all monster lovers have to see, where they are the owners of the big screen, the masters and protagonists of the actions.
